Durability

ArcelorMittal Europe has built up a unique body of knowledge on how its large steel offer is behaving under trials and project references, carried out in extreme marine, rural and industrial environments.

Over the project’s life-time, all types of construction are suffering a certain degree of degradation due to a combination of different factors, such as corrosion, UV radiation, abrasion, fatigue or atmospheric pollution. Building Sustainability is reinforcing the need for less maintenance over a longer life-time.

Consequently, longevity (so called durability of building material) is a key element feature taken into consideration from the design phase to building erection. There are several ways to define Durability in Construction. For the community of architects, aesthetics & sustainability aspects will be their main focus in terms of life- time expectancy. Structural and technical engineering offices strive to achieve the main objective of ensuring Construction Durability, from calculation to erection. Their primary focus is the functional characteristic of the structure’s material use, as well as the long lasting overall assembly.
